African Development - Todd J Moss, Danielle Resnick - Häftad () | BokusIn the ongoing battle against global poverty, African countries continue to present the greatest challenge. CGD senior fellow Todd Moss' new book African Development offers a comprehensive yet highly accessible introduction to the issues, actors and institutions interacting across the diverse continent. Moss's book covers each of the major economic and political themes, with each chapter organized around three fundamental questions: Where are we now? How did we get to this point? What are the current debates? It will meet the needs of all those who want to know more about Africa's mixture of disappointment and promise. It is also well written, and in a language that evokes powerful images and brings the material to life

Existing studies conceive the effects of the interactions to be unidirectional, with Africa always on the receiving end in both good and bad ways. The conception is incorrect; it lacks the appreciation that the effects are interactive, mutual, dynamic, and simultaneous. Thus, I argue that contrary to the extant literature, the development of Euro-America has origins in Africa through the mechanism of mercantile, slave, and free trade. For example, the growth of colonial Britain depended on foreign trade with the Americas — exports of manufactured goods and imports of raw materials. In turn, American raw materials were produced by African slave labor. When slavery ended African raw materials began to flow to Euro-America in greater amounts than before, replacing slave labor.
